TRIBUNE, Kan. -

Two people die in an early morning crash north of Tribune in Greeley County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 2:00 Thursday morning on Road 17 just south of Road O. Investigators say a pick-up truck driven by 25-year-old Christopher Jones went off the road, spun 45 degrees, hit a power pole and rolled.

Jones and 27-year-old passenger Matthew Bender were both taken to the hospital where they died. Both men were from Tribune. A 31-year-old female passenger also had a possible injury in the wreck.

The highway patrol says none of the people in the pick-up were wearing a seat belt.
